Dear International Living Australia Reader,

Just a few short months from today, you could be "testing the waters" in modern, sophisticated, affordable Malaysia.

In Malaysia you really CAN enjoy the best of ALL worlds.

Imagine waking up in the morning in your ultra-modern, tropical home.

You start your day on your oversized balcony with your laptop or mobile device, a plate of fresh fruit and a hot mug of award-winning gourmet coffee.

And here in your new Malaysian home, you've got everything you'd ever want:

You can:

And although you've got most—if not all—of the same modern amenities you're likely used to right now, you're living amongst some of the most exotic natural scenery you could possibly imagine.

It's like watching a nature show on the Discovery Channel or on Animal Planet…except it's right outside your home!

But here's the thing.

You're not hours away from civilisation.

In fact, just a few minutes from your new dream home, you'll find several of the most modern shopping centres you'll ever lay your eyes on!

And I'm talking fancier than you'll find back home!

Everything you could ever want to enjoy a first-class lifestyle—it's all right there.

Grocery stores…electronic stores…high-end fashion…a new Ferrari…you name it!

You'll be spoilt for choice.

And most of it (save the Ferrari) is very reasonably priced.

In Malaysia, You Really Can Do It All

Here you can:

…and much, much more.


Here are a few reasons why Malaysia could be the PERFECT fit for YOU if you're interested in a first-class, tropical, affordable lifestyle and retirement destination.

10 Reasons Why Malaysia Has Become Such An Ideal Fit For Discerning Expats Who Seek The Finer Things In Life...

More and more forward-minded retirees are realising that Malaysia offers a sophisticated, first-class quality of life that would be all but unaffordable back in Australia.

Here are 10 quick reasons why:

  1. Affordable, First-Class Dream Homes In Paradise. In today's Malaysia, you can STILL find properties like one-bedroom apartments in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur for under $250,000…three-bedroom apartments in the World Heritage Site of George Town, Penang for under $145,000…secluded beach-town retreats on the drop-dead gorgeous tropical island of Langkawi for under $160,000…
  2. Cut your cost of living by 35% to 50% or MORE. A couple can easily live on just over $1,300 a month. A budget of $3,900 or more will have you living in absolute luxury. An entire bag full of fresh fruit, including mangoes, bananas, apples, oranges and pineapples, costs just $5.20. High-speed internet is reliable and costs $39 a month. The premier pay TV package, for $52, includes favourites like HBO, Sky News and the BBC. And a couple can eat out well for less than $13. Go to night bazaars, and you can dine for much less than that: chicken-and-rice meals are often only $1.30.
  3. Enjoy a warm, year-round climate. You'll find the overall climate in Malaysia quite pleasant—although it can get a little hot and humid during certain times of the year. It's ALWAYS nice and warm out.
  4. Explore a tropical wonderland. Indulge your sense of adventure with a trek through uncharted jungles and steamy rainforests…kayak from island to island…visit an orangutan sanctuary…hike through lush, green rainforests…ride a quad bike, mountain bike or horseback along deserted, palm-lined beaches…dive in spectacular, crystal-clear waters. You can do all this—and more—in Malaysia…one of the world's most overlooked adventure travel destinations.
  5. Speak English with locals. You'll find that many of the locals speak excellent English. Communicating is easy. However, if you want to expand your horizons, you could learn a little bit of "Bahasa Malay". The thing is…Bahasa Malay is probably one of the EASIEST languages in the world to learn! What's more, the locals LOVE IT when you make an effort to speak their language.
  6. Receive affordable, first-rate healthcare. You'll find nearly any healthcare service that you could ever want, but at a fraction of the prices in Australia. An annual checkup costs $11.35. A filling and a cleaning costs about $41. In Australia, a check-up—including the examination, scale and clean, and a fluoride treatment—should be about $200. To replace a cap on a tooth costs, on average, $383 in Malaysia. At home, a full crown (veneered) would cost closer to $1,460. Furthermore, prices for prescription drugs are on the lower side here as well.
  7. Easy access to modern amenities and infrastructure. You'll encounter newly paved roads and highways, air-conditioned shopping centres, high-speed internet access, pay and satellite TV, and much more.
  8. Reap enormous real estate and tax benefits. Foreigners are allowed to own properties freehold. Plus, there's no inheritance tax, and no tax on income repatriated from overseas. There is no capital gains tax on equities either…and property sold after five years will incur only 5% capital gains tax.
  9. Capitalise on profitable business opportunities. If you qualify for Malaysia's attractive retirement program (don't worry—it's quite easy to qualify), you can work up to 20 hours a week, start your own business or even invest in businesses to help fund your new life in Malaysia.
  10. You can meet plenty of other like-minded expats. Since Malaysia is home to close to 200,000 expats from all over the world, it's not difficult to find other like-minded people. You'll find that there are dozens of expat groups and plenty of activities to keep you busy year-round!

And Then—On Top Of All This—There's Malaysia's World-Renowned Retirement Program For Expats!

It's called, "Malaysia My Second Home" (MM2H).

And it can help you save a lot of money…and a whole lot more!

The Malaysian government created this program back in 2006 to attract discerning expats from all over the world to retire in Malaysia.

So far, the program has been a great success.

And for good reason!

Qualify for this program and you can:

Additionally, any money that you bring into the country is tax-exempt.

And any interest earned on your money is also tax-exempt.

Qualifying for the program is relatively easy.

And once you've qualified, you're entitled to all of these benefits.

Quite a good deal!

That's why…now…

The Word Is Getting Out About Malaysia!

Here's what the mainstream press has been saying about Malaysia of late:

"The country has one of the most robust economies in Asia and this is reflected in the consistently high standard of living available to locals and expats alike."


"Malaysia offers excellent, low-cost healthcare, and some of the best-trained surgeons, dentists and specialists in the world. Medical expertise here is comparable and sometimes better than in most Western countries."

—The Huffington Post

"…every year, more and more expats wake up to the amazing opportunities Malaysia has to offer."

—New Straits Times Online

"…the top tropical paradise to retire in…"

—The Star

"…the cost of living is already low and the healthcare inexpensive."


"A meal with a bottle of wine can cost as little as US$5 and a visit to the doctor just $15."

—The Daily Mail

As you can see, the word is definitely out about Malaysia!

And if there's one thing we've learned over the past 37 years, it's this.

Once the word gets out, prices go up.

That's why NOW is the BEST TIME EVER to give tropical Malaysia a much closer look…if this kind of lifestyle appeals to you.

AND RIGHT NOW, you can STILL find some great real estate deals in Malaysia…if you know where to look.

Here Are Some Of The Alluring Real Estate Deals You Can Find In Malaysia



So if you've ever dreamed of living in your own beachfront home, colonial villa or an apartment in a private, gated community, you're likely to find it—at a very affordable price—in Malaysia.

That is…if you look in the right place:

But you really must act quickly!

Bargains like these are going fast as the mainstream press continues to rave about the benefits of retiring in Malaysia—attracting more expats wishing to stretch their retirement dollars while maintaining a sophisticated, first-class lifestyle.

And although property prices are on the rise, it's not too late to find an affordable dream property in Malaysia…provided you get in soon and know how to find the best values.

I'll show you the best way I know of to make that happen in just a moment.

But first, here's how a Canadian couple completely revolutionised their lifestyle by moving to Malaysia a few years ago…and what their new life is like right now.

(Remember, this could be YOU!)

"We Never Imagined That Life Here Would Be So Good"

Most evenings, Canadian expats Susan and Fred Murray can be found leisurely sipping sundowners and enjoying the sunset from their penthouse balcony in Penang, Malaysia.

But they didn't always have it so good.

Just a few years ago, Fred had his own building company in Edmonton, Alberta.

Susan was a busy physiotherapist.

Like most people, their lives revolved around their family and their jobs.

"Edmonton is a bitterly cold place in winter, and the truth is the winters were killing us," Fred says.

"Susan has arthritis and, when push came to shove, the thought of spending our years retired there was horrible. We'd been travelling to Malaysia and Thailand for a few years, and we liked what we saw. The people were super friendly, they genuinely liked Westerners, and the thought of spending at least seven months of the year in the tropics appealed."

After several years researching property and the different countries that were on offer, they instinctively knew that Malaysia was where they wanted to settle.

Its moderate tropical climate, low cost of living, and the people's welcoming attitude to foreigners were all factors that gave Malaysia the edge.

Today, as with most of Penang's 10,000-strong expat community, Susan and Fred find staying in is the hard thing.

Most evenings they are out with their many friends, both locals and expats.

In fact, eating out locally is so cheap that Fred and Susan regularly dine out.

A local dish, which might include half a kilo of prawns, savoury chicken, buttered fish and fresh vegetables, costs as little as $19.50 for two.

"We own our own apartment, so our monthly costs are low—maybe $1,300 a month—and that figure is dictated by the amount of alcohol we consume," Fred laughs.

"Sometimes it's more, sometimes it's less."

Utilities cost little in Malaysia. "Electricity is our biggest expense, and that runs about $105 a month," says Fred.

"We sleep with the A/C on in the bedroom at night, and I often use it when I'm working in my office. Gas for the cooker? Well, we eat out almost every night and I've had the same gas canister in the kitchen for eight months now, so what's that average at? Maybe $1.30 every six months."

People who eat in most nights don't spend that much more, and on average spend $3.90 every quarter.

"We've been going back to Canada for four months of the year, every year, for the past six years, when spring and summer kick in, to see the family. It's a good contrast and I like the seasons. The family has been over here, too."

"But to be honest, next year we are only going back for three months, and we are talking about shortening that, too. We love our lifestyle in Penang and we often talk to each other about living the dream, and we are, you know. We never imagined that life here would be so good," says Fred.

But Is Malaysia Right For YOU?

Even though Malaysia offers so, so much to discerning expats who want to enjoy the finest things in life (without spending a fortune), there are a few things about Malaysia that may stop you from ever calling it your new part-time or full-time home.

One concern that we hear pop up from time to time is the language barrier.

Do people even speak English in Malaysia?

Absolutely! You'll find that most locals speak at least passable English.

And many speak it very, very well!

You see, Malaysia is an extremely cosmopolitan country. People from all over the world call it home. And since English is the main international language... AND since Malaysia has its British past, English is widely-spoken.

Another concern that some people have is whether there will be any other like-minded people in Malaysia...and if it will be "too different" to back home.

Well...with close to 200,000 expats from all over the world now living and retiring in Malaysia—combined with the fact that you'll find many, many Western-style amenities in Malaysia (fast-food and chain centres with top-name, air-conditioned cinemas...countless coffee shops and cafes...and more)—you'll never, EVER feel like you're "winging it" or giving up too much.

Once you get settled in Malaysia, you won't want for anything.

It's easy, cheap yet sophisticated living. And it's something you can make happen...starting today!


YOU can enjoy the same high-quality lifestyle at an affordable price in Malaysia—one of the top retirement destinations in the world for Australians.

But before you do that, you must ask yourself a few very important questions.

For starters…

What's The Best "First Step" On Your Journey Towards Living Part-Time Or Full-Time In Sophisticated, Affordable Malaysia?

That alone is a critical question to answer.

After all, there's a lot to figure out! And you DO have to start somewhere!

You've got to ask yourself questions like:

Well…to answer all questions like these and more, we've created an all-inclusive up-to-date guide on how to make Malaysia your new part-time or full-time home.

And it is, quite frankly, the very best "first-step" towards enjoying a great new life in Malaysia that I know of.

And it can help YOU start "living like royalty" in Malaysia without ever wondering what you need to do first…second…third…and every step after that.

Here's what this is all about.

None of this compares with our latest and greatest resource on Malaysia.

This Is Not A Guide For A General Audience…

This powerful, one-of-a-kind resource on Malaysia is designed to help you focus your search for the right place to live and invest…and, specifically, to introduce you, in full detail, to all the reasons Malaysia should be at the top of your list.

Meet Keith Hockton—Your "Eyes On The Ground" In Exciting Malaysia

International Living Australia contributor Keith Hockton used to be an investment banker.

He liked his job. He made good money. And he was happy.

However, back in 2008, he made a conscious decision in the way he saw things…and the way he thought about his life.

He knew he and his wife wanted to move somewhere exotic. And they also wanted to do some high-quality travelling before it was too late.

That's why Southeast Asia—and specifically Penang, Malaysia—made perfect sense to them.

Penang offered a low cost-of-living, friendly people and year-round warm tropical weather. (Keith will tell you first-hand how much he hates cold weather…so he's pretty happy with Penang's year-round average temperature of 27 degrees.)

"Life is easier since I came to Malaysia," Keith said. "I've been able to pursue all my interests—particularly writing. I started off by writing a book on scuba diving—that's in its third print today. And now I write for a living…all because I took a chance and made the move."

You see, Keith has already done all the "hard" stuff when he made the move to Malaysia with his wife.

He had to figure out the best places to live…what visa to apply for…build a network of trustworthy contacts…discover the best restaurants…the works.

And he's taken everything he learned in his experience moving to Malaysia and documented it in this manual.
